COLT 1860 ARMY

$2,550.00

This gun was built in the height of the Civil War in 1863. Nice overall condition with an attractive brown antique patina. Good bbl markings and a VG cylinder scene which is seldom seen on these 1860’s. One oddity on this gun is the frame, trigger guard and backstrap are matching numbers. The wedge and cylinder also match but are different than the frame but only by a few numbers. Did Colt do this to get much needed guns into the Civil War effort, or were the parts changed later? Regardless, this is a very attractive Colt.
